For the second year in a row, Agnieszka Radwanska has suffered defeat in the first round of the Aegon International. The top seed lost today to qualifier Jamie Hampton, who defeated her 7-6, 6-2. Last year, when Radwanska was also the top seed, the Polish star was overcome in the opening round by the grass court danger otherwise known as Tsvetana Pironkova.
Actually, Radwanska's "consistency" could serve her well at Wimbledon. Last year, she left Eastbourne for London, played extremely well, and made it all the way to the final, in which she lost to Serena Williams.
Radwanska wasn't the only one. Defending champion Tamira Paszek was taken out in the first round today by Caroline Wozniacki.
